In this excessive episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Ed Rojas joins me to discuss the Internet of Things (IoT).

Ed (@EdgarR0jas) has recently switched roles. In that role he's researching the internet of things. The internet of things is everywhere and it's starting to become an issue for the security community. From baby monitors to IP cameras to fridges, everything in the home is becoming connected. The issue comes in with the security being embedded in these device. There isn't any and it's allowing malicious people to create massive bot armies for distributed denial of services (DDoS). It's a tough problem to solve. Luckily, Ed is on the case.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is the internet of things?
  • Why is an IoT an issue?
  • What should organizations be worried about?
  • What are the dangers of IoT?
